Catherine of Aragon

Why Catherine of Aragon is important to history:Catherine was to have her marriage with King Henry annulled. However, she did not like this, so she brought the case to court, also bringing along the Protestant Reformation to England. Catherine also was the Spanish Ambassador to England, therefore assuring peace between the two countries. She also, singlehandedly, held off a Scottish rebellion, which could have overthrown England's power while her husband was in France.
